Inlays / Onlays Vancouver
If damage to the tooth is quite large, we will sometimes recommend a lab processed restoration. This adds more strength back to the tooth, especially the back molars that take most of the force from chewing. An ‘inlay’ sits within the cusps/bumps of the tooth and an ‘onlay’ replaces one or more cusps/bumps of the tooth.
Both restorations involve removal of the cavity or broken tooth structure, similar to a filling. An impression is then taken of the prepared tooth. We place a temporary filling in the tooth while the lab makes your new restoration. In about 7 days you can return and have the temporary replaced with your new inlay/onlay. This will restore your tooth to it’s natural strength and appearance and will last you much longer than a large filling.

The RCDG Difference…
New Patient Visit – How it Works
During your first visit we will take some digital X-Rays and see what’s going on inside of your mouth. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and come up with a treatment plan.
Your Mouth, Your Decisions
Once we have shared our recommendations, we want you make the best decisions for yourself. We will never be pushy or recommend treatments that you do not need.
